Hi Peter hope you are well
Doing a Google search I find there is a book on Wharram Percy this is what
Wharram Percy, located in Yorkshire, has been occupied by humans since the
Iron Age. Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Normans -- all have lived out
their lives in this high-wold village. As an archeological site, it was
one of the most important peasant digs in England.
Here you will see St. Martin's parish church, peasant house sites, and the
Norman manor house.
Have a look at this site http://www.stockton.edu/~ken/wharram/wharram.htm
This is a comment of the church from the above site (it has a photo)
When the actual excavation of St. Martin's took place in the early 1970s,
not many parish churches had ever been fully dug. This was, then, an
unusually good opportunity to see the progression of sites in an English
parish church. The building had not been in use since for over 20 years
and was decrepit. After the interior funishings, wall plaster, pews and
flooring had been removed, the graves had to be carefully excavated.
I am not saying anymore..just look at the site
After a small hunt on the internet I couldn't find a map of Wharram Percy,
but after another try I have succeeded and discover that Wharram Percy is
close to Thixendale where my family lived, and so must presume that the
church, now a ruin, was still being used in 1821.
